Te Huna earned UFC victory, despite broken arm

James Te Huna  found victory in his UFC debut, but he also paid a price for his UFC 110 triumph, breaking a bone in his arm that will likely keep him out of action for several weeks.

The local Australian press reported a possible arm injury in the days after the event, and MMA Fighting was able to confirm that he suffered a broken arm.

In the UFC 110 opener at Sydney's Acer Arena, Te Huna engaged in an action-packed bout with Croatian Igor Pokrajac that finished in a TKO victory.

The light-heavyweight reportedly injured his arm in the second round, possibly while attempting to block a Pokrajac kick. Despite the injury, which he was apparently unaware of at the time, Te Huna continued on and finished Pokrajac with strikes at 3:26 of the last round.

That was one tough win for Tehuna. He seriously lost the stand-up but his heart and his heavy takedowns and GNP got him through. The crowd was electric during this fight with atleast 90-95%of the seats already filled and it was the first fight.

 I saw him win a fight with a dislocated shoulder once (decision against a japanese guy). They stuck the shoulder back in and he kept fighting. He doesn't quit.
